St. Patty's Nails

I got really bored the other night....as well as excited that I had two shades of green polish that would be perfect for some St. Patty's Nails.

So I got it in my head to do a little step by step of how I did these fun tips!
Seche Vite Top Coat, OPI Base Coat, Gargantuan Grape, and a nice kelly green from Express' Spring Nail Collection


 First I did a base coat. Then I did THREE coats of the light green. (Gargantuan Green) I say THREE because that's what you need for it to be opaque. Be careful with this color because it has the tendency to be a little streaky. (As do most light polishes.)


Ok...next I did a quick coat of Seche Vite to help this dry before I taped the tips....which was a hot mess.....

Sorry its blurry....I'm right handed.
Then I did another coat of Seche Vite....then I got reeeeeeaaally creative with a paper clip and added shamrocks to both ring fingers. Which turned out like this.

Then it dawned on me that I had the perfect colors to make a pot 'o gold!

The Pot is Ulta Little Black Dress, the Gold is Butter London in Full Monty....and I have no excuse for this blurry mess.

 So is everyone super excited for a weekend St. Patrick's Day. It's kind of a big deal here in C-bus, because of our proximity to Dublin. I think I may step out for a bit this year. Confession: I've never actually gone out for a St. Patrick's Day. I'll let you know how it goes.

Its Thursday?

Well...crap when did that happen?

I feel like someone is pressing the fast forward button on my weeks. I turn around and they are gone. Seriously its March you guys. Next week is St. Patrick's Day. For some reason Boomer is REALLY into it. Wait til I tell her she's part Irish too. (Maybe I'll wait a few years. They whole you're ethnically Jewish thing was a little hard to sell to a four year old.)

So....the last few times I blogged, I talked about how my house is eating my clothes. Well happy times because I found my grey skinnies! Actually about five minutes ago. Which reminded me to blog. Yes....I know. Sad.

I still can't find my mini skirt though.

I'll be better next week. Cuz I found my camera. Yippee.

Oh Laptop....How I've Missed You

Hey lovelies!

My laptop has been MIA for awhile now because I loaned it to my mother for her dissertation proposal. (She needed extra computers for her editor and helpers.) Boy oh boy did I miss my computer. I missed reading my favorite daily bloggies. I missed fanatically checking IFB, Facebook, and twitter. (Yeah my phone does all that too, but its just so much more satisfying on my couch with my laptop.)

Not much has been going on in this here Katy-ville. My temp contract has been extended. So I get to hang at my WAY cool job until May. (Still hoping that its more, cuz it seriously ROCKS!!!)

Boomer is busy as usual. I can't believe how quickly she went from not reading to reading EVERYTHING. Including my text messages, any word that pops up on the TV and road signs.

Example:

JJ and Boomer were driving home from school. All of the sudden JJ hears.

Boomer: STOP!!!!!!!!!!

JJ: OMG! What? What happened? Is a car coming?
Boomer: Oh, no Daddy. That's what that sign says.

or this gem.....

I enjoy watching movies with subtitles. Its a weird quirk. However now that my sweet loving child wants to read everything she sees, the way that I enjoy movies is no longer enjoyable.  I wait to watch everything until she goes to bed. This works for me.

I'm including this because...well its funny. Its like the duck lip pose is ingrained in our psyche from birth. Which is scary. It also disturbs me that my child just up and puts lipstick on and has a mini photo sesh with herself. I CLEARLY let her read too many blogs with me.

So....I have a problem. My clothes are disappearing. In my house. First it was a mini-skirt, now its a pair of skinnies. And socks. We might as well call my laundry room the place where socks go to die. It wasn't especially bothersome until I went to put outfits together in my mind and remember that piece of clothing has gone poof! I'm only scheduled for an on-call Sunday. I see a major house clean(i.e. finally throw shiz away) in my future.
